Mission Without Borders is responding in Ukraine with emergency care packages, shelter and food to families and individuals who may be cut off from accessing necessities as they seek safety for themselves.

Our local staff and partner churches are providing accommodation and meals for refugees at the borders and across Moldova and Romania.

We are transporting essential items, such as mattresses, linen, warm and protective clothing and infant and maternity care items into Ukraine – as well as to Moldova and Romania to support refugees there.

Please donate to our Ukraine Emergency Fund and provide emergency care, shelter and food today.

Mission Without Borders is an international network of Christians working to support the poor and marginalized. We have been exclusively operating in Eastern Europe and the region now comprising Ukraine for over 62 years.

We have a strong network of well-established partnerships across the region. All our field staff are local to their respective countries. This is vital, as it ensures our ability to respond quickly in a crisis and guarantees the longevity of our work and impact.

Our history shows that when a regional crisis ends (the fall of the Berlin Wall, civil war, natural disaster) and other great humanitarian relief agencies leave, we stay.

Through our local staff and partner churches in Ukraine, we are supporting families and vulnerable individuals migrating across the country, as well as those unable to flee. Local churches have converted their basements to bomb shelters and taken in families needing emergency shelter.

We are distributing emergency food packs, essential hygiene items and transporting other essential goods into the country – mattresses, linen and blankets, baby and maternity supplies and protective and warm clothing for adults and children.

Through our teams in Moldova and Romania, we are supporting refugees crossing the borders. Our partner churches are providing accommodation in their buildings and distributing hot meals - at the borders and across the country as refugees search for a place to settle.

Refugees – almost all women and children fleeing alone across the country, often on foot.

Ukrainian families – men, women and children in need of emergency care and shelter.

The elderly and vulnerable in Ukraine, unable to make the journey to the border.

Local churches and pastors in Ukraine, faithfully serving and ministering to those in desperate need.

No. In all our work, we respond to those in need and do not discriminate according to faith, ethnicity or race. We do have a long history of sharing the love of God in both word and deed, and our team will always offer counsel and prayer to those open to it. But sharing our beliefs is not a prerequisite for material support and assistance.



Light and hope in the shadow of war

The people of Eastern Ukraine have lived under the shadow of war since 2014 when this conflict first began. We have worked in the region throughout – initially delivering emergency food and hygiene parcels and then expanding our work to sustainably support families in the conflict zone.

One of our team, Pastor Oleg, has lived in the Donbas region for many years. 

He says the words from Isaiah 41:1-2 have strengthened him during the darkest days. 

Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

Thanks to the faithfulness of team members like Pastor Oleg, our work continues across Ukraine. Even under these tragic circumstances – we will continue to serve the people who call Ukraine home.

"We do everything together"

Galyna recalls, “I was wounded in my stomach and on my hand in 2014 during the bombing.  I was suddenly covered in blood. I was taken by car to the next village hospital through the streets, which were on fire. It was bright as day due to the phosphorous bombs.

Since 2014, our village has been under constant bomb attacks until everything was destroyed.

My husband and I have nowhere to go. We have been living here for more than 45 years. All that time, we have been building our nest, and neither of us could ever believe that such times as these could come. We are in our 70s, and God may give us a few more years. We feel like we can’t start something new again. We want to be buried here, in our motherland.

With no electricity, heating or water supply, our daily life is more like surviving. Still, we are happy to have each other. Everything we do, we do together. I hope that we will die together on the same day. Most of our provision is humanitarian aid. We are deeply thankful to those people who live far away but whose hearts are open and compassionate towards us.”
